Trinidad and Tobago, tropical islands on the continental shelf of northeastern South America, enjoy a rich diversity of bird species, including visitors from the nearby mainland and others traveling the migratory flyway from North America. This compact, portable field guide is designed to provide birders and ornithologists with all the up-to-date information they need to identify birds in the field. The book features color illustrations and descriptions of almost 470 different species—every species known to occur naturally in Trinidad or Tobago as well as those successfully introduced there.

 

Following a brief description of the geography, habitats, and climate of the region, the guide offers instructions for identifying birds, watching safely, and discovering the places where particular species are most likely to be found. No resident or visitor to the islands will want to be without this essential guide.
